Please Take Great Care When Moving Between Courts
Even at club mixing-in times, it is a good idea to practise awareness of courts on which points are in progress, when crossing behind them, before and after playing. It may mean waiting for a break in play on more than one pair of courts. If that is considered an unnecessary burden during club play, pausing, before crossing each pair of courts, at least, would remind us to check that no match is in progress, and nobody is about to serve, before continuing. Even on club nights, adjacent courts can be bookable for matches after 8pm when great care is essential.In their case, please wait for a break in play before crossing.
